of the center section. when president obama was inaugurated in 2009, he sat in the very front of the church in pew 62. if you are talking about a regular church service, the president would come in to the eighth street entrance, a walk down the aisle, said in a dispute, and be part of the worship service with the rest of the church. one of the great things about st. john's is this book of common prayer published in 1866. it has embossed upon it, president pugh. this book of common prayer was used from president buchanan forward until it was taken out of service when a new edition was published in the 18 eighties. but 1961, laid service was planned at st. john's to recognize the tenants of abraham lincoln, the organist at st. john's found this in the archives and discussed it with church leaders at the time. they thought would be a good idea to have every president still living to sign it and every president that would follow them to sign it as well. so what we have inside this historic book are the signatures of herbert hoover, franklin roosevelt's, which was signed by his wife, harry truma

in politics. my question today, is a reasonable believe that president obama's second term will be similar or different from his first, considering that the same economic crisis still exists, even though you mentioned that the second inauguration is traditionally about more specific, what you want to talk about, now that he no longer has to run for reelection? >> second terms have been filled with totally unpredictable things. franklin roosevelt, you would think he was completely in charge. the first thing he did was asked for support to increase the size of the supreme court. richard nixon took the oath of office after winning a huge victory in 1972. in 1973, he was on top of the world. a year-and-a-half later, he was resigning because of the watergate scandal. there are a lot of things that you cannot predict. you hope that president after the first term are much more in control of what is going on, but circumstances are going to be beyond their knowledge at this stage of the game. i am afraid i cannot predict. second terms have often not been as productive as first terms. ever since the

"i" -- an "i" term for barack obama. i hope it will be we've got to solve these problems to go. i'm not talking about we in yes, we can, but congress has to work with the president. the president has to work with congress. so that requires presidential leadership. we didn't see a lot of it in the first term. i am hoping he will reach across the aisle to solve some of the big problems like war on terror, like the challenges of the deficit and the debt, and also to get a budget. we haven't had had a budget in a long time. i hope he will step up to responsibilities to be a president that is inclusive rather than exclusive and focus on the word, we can do it together. >> eric: this morning, on fox sunday, it's common ground and grand themes, but look -- and compromise. his campaign organizing for america they changed that organizing for action. he will be pushing his policies. how does that square with the theme of common ground? >> i think it's a little inconsistent. president should be listening to people who won election during the last cycle. there were a lot of republicans that w

president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way
, january 20th, of course, the second term of president obama and vice president biden is now about to begin. joining us once again with a little bit more perspective is professor dr. alan lichtman. one of the things we were talking about is that, you know, to a certain extent in a president's second term, you would think there would be a certain amount of freedom. they don't have to worry about getting re-elected, but you've written that sometimes second terms aren't exactly kind to incumbents. >> second terms have been tough. george w. bush left with the economy melting down and lowest approval ratings practically in history for a president. bill clinton was impeached. richard nixon resigned his office. dwight eisenhower faced the humiliation of sputnik and the u2 affair. that said, you can accomplish things in your second term. franklin roosevelt got the fair labor standards act that gave us minimum wage and maximum hours. ronald reagan had the big breakthroughs with the soviet union. but it's tough. here's where i think obama can accomplish something in the second term, despite the obsta
obama kicking off three days of celebrating by encouraging people to volunteer. he himself put in work at washington elementary school as part of the national day of service. molly? >> harris we can talk about what the president said in the national day of service. it was a chance for people to look out for each other and work hard on behalf of each other. he said this to the happens of volunteers in the elementary school working to give it a make over. >> as i look around the room, i see friends from all over the country people who have just been great supporters of ours and more importantly, everybody here adults, to children, understand the importance of giving back. >> and the vice-president and his family also participated in the national day of service. they filled care packages for deployed servicemen and women . mr. biden said we need to know back at home to remember them. >> molly henenburg thank you. >>> and at this hour a special enaugusteral ball for kids . >> look how young they are. the first lady and her daughters are taking part in the star-studdedentious vent. 5,000 ch
the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to bode well for their ability to compromise with him and for the president to get a second term agenda passed.
's stop spending. and then of course probably the most important that he will talk about tomorrow, compromise, work together. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let me bring in the rest of our roundtable here. joe scarborough is here from msnbc's "morning joe." adviser to obama 2012, david axelrod. chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here, safe and sound in studio. richard, it's great to see you in person this morning.
